We dont care...its when we are having a scientific discussion and someone from your side says....laminin is a protein in the shape of a cross ...therefore god is real...
Maybe that's your problem...
Perhaps you are you missing the point.
The Temple Cult of Scientism has become more of a blind faith than most religions.
The cult of scientific fundamentalism is just as dangerous as any other cult out there if not more so.
The irony and hypocrisy of this is so obvious that it is comical in a way.
"...the Illuminati eventually controlled the science departments in all colleges and institutions of higher learning. The plan was to stifle scientific knowledge and then twist what was left to fit the science they wanted the people to believe.

It makes both sides more secure to reinforce their beliefs.
I don't know anything for sure...but, the subject is fascinating.
a group known as the Magnolia State Heritage Campaign is trying to cement Christianity as the state’s official religion in its constitution. They are proposing a constitutional amendment that they hope will be on the 2016 ballot.
The campaign’s Arthur Randallson explained to American Family Association news network OneNewsNow, “We have taken a little bit of time to prepare an initiative that covers promoting Christianity, which is recognized as the principal religion of Mississippi from the founding of the state in 1817 to the present, and affirmed in the state constitution prayer acknowledging the Holy Bible.”
The actual text of the amendment would read:
The State of Mississippi hereby acknowledges the fact of her identity as a principally Christian and quintessentially Southern state, in terms of the majority of her population, character, culture, history, and heritage, from 1817 to the present; accordingly, the Holy Bible is acknowledged as a foremost source of her founding principles, inspiration, and virtues; and, accordingly, prayer is acknowledged as a respected, meaningful, and valuable custom of her citizens. The acknowledgments hereby secured shall not be construed to transgress either the national or the state Constitution’s Bill of Rights.
In other words, it doesn’t violate the First Amendment, which prohibits the establishment of a state religion, simply because it says that it wouldn’t.
The Tea Party-driven initiative would also establish English as the official language of the state, requiring all governmental services, functions, or communications to be rendered “in the English language only.”
Another significant aspect of the “Heritage Initiative” is an embrace of the state’s Confederate heritage. “Dixie” would be made the state song, April would be “Confederate Heritage Month,” the Confederate Battle Flag would be flown at the state capitol, and “Colonel Reb” would be reinstated as the official mascot of the University of Mississippi, having been changed out for a less-offensive black bear named “Rebel” in 2010.

Why can't believers stop preaching? I couldn't care less about religious people if they would stop meddling, preaching and hating on non-believers. If you constantly insult atheists, homosexuals or others that don't fit in with your beliefs, expect a defense. If you just go to church and stick with each other and leave us 'others' in peace you'd be amazed how little we care about religious types.
I couldn't care less about non-religious people if they would stop meddling, preaching and hating on beliefs and morality. If you constantly insult Christians, Jews or others that don't fit in with your immoral beliefs, expect a defense.
Atheists God is science and they worship it as we have seen in oh so many threads in the past and a few here.
What has science done?
Bush sr: No, I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God
Go ahead and use the same argument everyone else does. You people have redrawn the rules? Know the last time Catholics or Christians fought and created violence for our religion? It was THE CRUSADES!!!
Science. Know what's killing our Earth? Science.
